akhdi's revealisme


I believe all people are born with a sense of art . Everyone dreams ; everyone has an imaginationThe challenge is to figure out what you're born for . You have to nourish your creativity , no matter how difficult your life is .No matter how talented you are , if you don't have patience you won't  achieve your goals.

My work comes primarily from life experience . To become individual with the canvas I need strong concentration .Often I don't begin by knowing what I'm going to paint . I let the images come to me . Then I respond  by becoming completely involved in the work . I continue working until I feel unified with the picture . I think of myself as an artist who draws poetry  using visual materials.     Abdellah Akhdi
